The all-British heavyweight fight between Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora has been rescheduled for November 22 in London.

The original bout, scheduled for July 26 in Manchester, was postponed after Chisora fractured his hand during a sparring session.

Promoter Frank Warren says "despite the setbacks, they were both determined to fight each other and I believe that we could see a genuine old-fashioned ring war between them."

The fight is a final eliminator for the WBO world title, currently held by Wladimir Klitschko.

It is about what I thought he'd get

Not harsh enough, he deserved more

Too tough, he should have got less
